In his book of devotion, entitled 
Vet Another Day, Dr. J. H. Jowctt, 
the eminent English divine, who 
once lived hi New York City, offers 
l »is prayer: 

"Give us pity for the infirm. May 
sorrow and deformity never become 
» commonplace! May I ever move 
toward them in sympathetic response! 
May 1 have eyes tor the blind, and 
,e et for the lame, and healing for all 
the sons and daughters of p;iin !" 

A clever essayist wrote a plea for 
the halfway poor. She defined the 
c h»ss as those who, obliged by cou- 
v ention and precedent to maintain a 
pertain show of what is known* as 
'gentility," can only do so by con- 
trivances and concealments that are 
ln genious and pathetic. The con- 
fessedly poor, having no traditions 
of better days to support, and no fix- 
ed standard for dress and fashion of 
daily living to obey, are a law unto 

Th- pica 1 wish to make is for 
!l111 ict inn that is not recognized un- 
der that title ; for disability that, 

instead of awakening in the behold- 
er the " sympathetic response " for 
which Dr. Jowett pleads as a 
Christian grace, is made the subject 
of ridicule, and the butt even of 
the humane. 

A college professor was relating 
to a circle of amused auditors 
anecdotes of the blunders in the 
lecture room of the scion of a race 
distinguished for learning and 
social grace : 

" II» was graduated from my 
alam forly years ago," the narrator 
went on to nay. " Don't ask me 
how tie got, through! There wuh a 
big ' pull ' somewhere. His father 
was governor of the slate; his uncle 
was H senator. There was hardly a 
mats of the name who did not 
deserve well of the nation. This 
boy was below par, intellectually — 
not exactly deficient, and several 
degree* above absolute idiocy. 

His mind had DO grasp upon facts 
and principles, "e rarely came to 
a recitation without soiling the 
class in a roai, as for example, 
when he translated ' Uic jacet' as 
1 Nothing remains,' because be 
recollected seeing It upon tomb- 
"tones and B apposed it meant Unit! 
" At another time, he gave the 
Second Roman Triumvirate as ' Mark 
Antony, Cleopatra and Romulus' ; a 
mischief loving classmate behind him 
had prompted him in a whisper. 
He was a source of infinite jest to 
his associates. I remonstrated with 
some of them occasionally, foral 
though he was a marvelously sweet- 
u-mpered boy, I could see that their 

E ranks and jokes cut into his sensi- 
ility at times. I could not help 
pitying him, but Jeremiah in his 
most "sorrowful mood would have 
laughed if he had sat in my chair." 
Another of the party, a distin- 
guished clergyman, had his story of 
a personal friend: 

"As fine a fellow as ever lived, 
who has been handicapped all his 
life long by a slight but inveterate 
stammer He would have made an 
eloquent lawyer, for he had a judi 
cial mind, keen perceptions, snd, iu 
writing, wonderful command of 
language. As it was, he would 
'catch' upon a word, and hang there 
until the class laughed and applaud- 
ed. Then he sat down, overcome 
by confusion. He was as sensitive 
as he was brilliant in thought, and 
as he would have been in speech 
but for the infirmity he has never 
overcome. He ought to be a judge 
of the Supreme Court intead of in 
the real estate business. ' ' 

It would have been needless to 
explain that not one of the tormen- 
tors of these halfway afflicted per- 
sons would have failed in gentle 
consideration for a deaf-mute or an 
idiot. Absolute mental incapacity 
and physical helplessness appeal to 
the indcst and most thoughtless 

We all have acquaintances whose 
bearing is, as they would put it, 
"slightly impaired." There is 
something; so pitiful in their anxious 
endeavor to hide the incipient in- 
firmity that we should, out of sheer 
compassion, abet the deception by 
tad and pious diplomacy. 

The memory of an aunt or a 
grandmother may be getting treach- 
erous. She forgets something of 
supreme interest to us, confided to 
her with impressive detail only last 
week. When reminded of it (and 
none too gently!) she is sure we are 
at fault, not she. Or she regrets, 
plaintively, that she is more forget- 
ful thau of yore. She supposes it 
is natural when she has so much 
more to Carry in her mind than 
when she was a girl. 

Do wc humor her in the delusion 
that her halfway affliction has no- 
thing to do with her age, backing up 
the pious pretense by relating in- 
stances of our own lapse of memory? 
Or, as I fear is oftener true, do we 
smile, when we are not vexed, at 
the absurd attempt to ignore the 
advance of the time when the shadow 
shall deepen into night? When that 
comes none of us will jest at the 
bereavement; real pain and sorrow 
will call out all that is best in us. 

It is not complimentary to our 
common human nature that so few 
of us can resist undervaluing the 
dignity of semi-affliction. History 
is full of anecdotes that illustrate 
the disposition of all classes to laugh 
at personal peculiarities or mental 

Charles Lamb's stammer was imi- 

d by those who were proud of an 

acquaintanceship that gave them the 

chance to pick up a characteristic 

saying. No one sympathized with 
the mortification he felt when the 
impediment checked a pun in his 
throat or held back a telling repartee. 
He, in his turn, found food for wit- 
ticism in his sister's deafness. 

" Poor Mary!" he remarked at a 
dinner, seeing her blank stare when 
a laugh ran round the board. " She 
gets all of a story except the point." 
The biographer continues the tale: 
" Now you are saying something 
about me, Charles!" she said queru- 
lously. " What is it?" 

" Mr. Willis was talking of your 
Confessions of a Drunkard," rejoin- 
ed the brother, " and I was saying 
it was no credit to you that you un- 
derstood the subject I" 
The amused narrator adds: 
" We had been talking of the 
book (which by the way was his 
own, not hers) half an hour before." 
Charles Lamb loved his sister most 
fondly, yet he could not resist the 
temptation to jest upon her infirmity. 
I know a man— tall, brawny and 
bearded — whose falsetto voice, un- 
changed from the reedy pipe of the 
boy is a source of intense chagrin 
to him. Few even of his blood and 
name respect his halfway affliction. 
His nephews mock it behind his back. 
Jokes are current of mistakes made 
in the dark by strangers who, hear- 
ing him speak, addressed him as 
" Madam." And one man who 
passes for a gentleman relates how 
he put the halfway afflicted man to 
shame in a public meeting by rising 
to speak upon the other side of the 
question under debate, and falling, 
as if unconsciously, into the high 
squeak of his opponent. 

" The imitation was so perfect 
that it brought down the house," 
says he complacently. " I begged 
pardon, presently, pleading that I 
had naturally gone on in the same 
key with my eloquent friend, but he 
dared not open his mouth aferwards. 
It was an effectual quietus." 

We do well to entreat the Father 
of Mercies that " sorrow and defor- 
mity never become a commonplace 
to us. ' ' We do better when we ask 
that our moral and spiritual percep- 
tions may be quickened to sympa- 
thize with the sorrow and the defor- 
mity that are not generally recogniz- 
ed by those names. 

A writer defiues tact as " putting 
oneself in thought in another's 
place." It might be as aptly said 
that sympathy means knowing what 
to do aud what to say when one has 
done that, and acting upon that 
knowledge. Tact and sympathy 
combined from a quality beyond 
rubles in worth. I am glad the uew 
version of St. Paul's glorious eulogy 
upon the " chief among the blessed 
three" translates it aright as love. 
Were it blended aud welded into the 
childish mind and heart as assidu- 
ously as we instill the rudiments of 
polite behavior " in company," we 
should have no more annals of in- 
humanity in school ind home. 

Mary Taylor, who became 
afterwards Charlotte Bronte's 
intimate friend, relates without a 
tinge of shame that she told the shy 
daughter of the Yorkshire parson 
that "she was very ugly." We hear 
of the jeers of other school- fellows 
at the purblind eyes that obliged 
Charlotte to bold her book so close 
to her face that her nose almost 
touched the page, and that a stock 
jest was to watch her while she 
wrote or drew, in the gleeful hope 
that her long nose would some day 
rub out exercise or sketch. Her 
nearsighted eyes hindered her from 
seeing obstructions on the play- 

"She was almost sure to stumble 
when she tried to run. If urged to 
play ball she acquiesced with amiable 
indifference but was soon left out, 
being uuable to see the ball when it 
was tossed high. Her mishaps on 
account of defective eyesight were a 
source of unending amusement to 
her companions." 

Yet that crew of unmannerly pu- 
pils would have made a pet of a blind 
child, and would have tenderly lifted 
a blind child over rough places. 

As a proof of our universal dis- 
position to accept actual deformity as 
a recommendation to mercy, we 
have the truth that in a vast major- 
ity of cases the really |" afflicted" 
ember of a family is indulged be- 
yond reason. Parents, brothers and 
sisters, are in league to compensate in 
some poor measure for nature's 
injustice to the maimed, halt and 
blind. It has passed into a proverb 
that the cripple is usually conceited, 

the blind exacting of attention from 
the whole household, the deaf and 
dumb flattered Into the belief ot ex- 
traordinary talents, and made a 
show of to admiring visitors. 

The halfway afflicted child, mau 
or woman, is less likely to receive 
sympathy aud encouragement. —

Twenty-five years ago thousands 
of tous of lumpish, reddish powder 
were dumped out of the uranium 
mines of Bohemia at disposal of 
any one who chose to cart it away. 
Hidden away in the dust were par-

Radium comes from pitchblende 
or uianinite, a mineral found in 
Saxony, Bohemia, Cornwall, Colo- 
rado, and a few . other places. 

It takes months of work to 
extract from a ton of ore enough 
radium to cover the point of a 
knife. All the radium that exists 
in the world today, extracted aud 
purified, amounts to only sixty 
grams, a quantity so small it could 
he carried around in a man's pooket. 
Pure radian can be determined 
in five minutes by a wireless tide 
graph instrument, by which radium 
rays are measured. Radium is sold 
by the weight of the rays measured 
thuB, not. by the size or weight of 
the radium crystal. Radium is the 
strongest force in the world. The 
power contained in a grain is enough 
to raise a battleship of twenty-eight 
thousand tons oue hundred feet in 
the air. 

A very little radian mixed with 
zinc crystals will make an object 
permanently luminous. This pro- 
perty of radium was utilized 
especially during the war to make 
luminous watches and compasses 
which were invisible to the enemy. 
Last year there were four million 
radium watches manufactured in 
tips United States. There are now 
on the market guns with luminous 
sights, luminous buttons for llash- 
lighls and tire-extinguishers, aud 
radium lighted llsh bait. 

True diamonds can be delected 
.by radium. A diamond held near 
radium, even if the indium is in an 
iron box, will glow in the dark. 
A glass or paste diamond will re

asked a doctor to test her ring which 
was set with four large-stones Iu 
the dark only three showed. Then 
she remembered that twenty years 
before she lost one and h jeweler 
had replaced it for her, at a good 
price She had never suspected it 
as being glass. 

The force of radium will pass 
through any substance but lead or 
steel. It will pass through a pile of 
books or through four or Ave inches 
of oak or pine wood with equal case. 
A piece of radium must therefore 
uevei be carried iu the pocket, 01 In 
a pasteboard or wooden box, but in 
a thick, lead contaiuer. Even 
when carried in lead, it has the 
power to make uncomfortable 
blisters i( forgotten. 

In one hospital a very faithful 
night watchman was told to put a 
specimen of radium in the safe after 
the nurse had removed the tube 
from a patient, lie was so afraid 
to put it away until he had been OB

Of the twenty-eigbl men who 
have occupied the nation's highest 
office, eighteen attended college ; 
only two of this number, James 
Monroe and William Henry Harrison 
did not graduate. President-elect 
Harding will be the nineteenth col- 

The institutions of learning that 
hold the foremost rank as educators 
of Presidents are Harvard and Wil- 
liam aud Mary. John Adams and 
John Quincy Adams, also Theodore 
Roosevelt, finished at Harvard. Jef- 
ferson, Monroe and Tyler are the 
sons of William aud Mary. Prince- 
ton has two representives on the roll 
of Presidents, and Yale one. 

Andrew Jackson was self-taught, 
and was no scholar such as his pre- 
decessor. Caught in the sweep of the 
Revolution, the daring lad of thir- 
teen years promptly "joined in" 
against the British. He had first at- 
tended a Carolina school kept in a 
log pen twenty feet square and there 
acquired a smattering of the three 
R's. He made no progress in spell- 
ing. When he became President his 
enemies circluated the story that he 
endorsed papers with the symbol 
" O. K ," which he believed to be 
the initials of " All Correct," mis- 
spelled by him as " Oil Korrect/' 
As there is another story of the ori- 
gin of the phrase this version must 
be considered doubtful. 

Another sufferer in the olash be- 
tween patriotism and the desire for 
an education was James Monroe. 
He went to college in 1774, left a 
year later, and immediately obtain- 
ed a lieutenancy in the Third Vir- 
ginia Regiment. Roosevelt char- 
acterized him as "a very amiable 
gentleman, but distinctly one who 
comes in the category of those whose 
greatness is thrust upon them." 
What might have beeu said of him 
if the war had begun in 1779 or 

School in Paris did not interest 
John Quincy Adams, so his father 
sent him to the University of Leyden, 
in Holland. For a loug time he serv- 
ed as private secretary to an Ameri- 
can representative whom the Rus- 
sian Government refused to receive. 
The boy then told his father that he 
thought " an American education to 
be best for an American career." 
Accordingly he returned to his native 
land, entered Harvard, and graduat- 
ed at the age of twenty-one. The 
elder Adams, either precocious or 
probably given a smoother prepara- 
tory schooling, completed the course 
at Harvard wheu he was uiueteen. 
As a freshman in college Thomas 
Jefferson participated in festivities 
of a riotous sort. He soon saw, 
however, that such conduct would 
get him nowhere; so he swung to the 
other extreme, began to discuss 
philosophy and government with 
members of the faculty, and often 
spent as much as fifteen hours ou his 
studies a single day. 

Franklin Pierce nearly let his 
martial ambition and enthusiasm for 
the study of military tactics prove 
bis undoing. He served as an officer 
in a company of college students, 
and at the end of two years he found 
himself at the foot of his class. The 
disgrace of the situation stung hi in. 
He resolved to pull himself up by 
his bootstraps or otherwise. He 
turned his attention to the subjects 
which he had neglected, with the 
result that he ranked third in his 
class when the "sheepskins" were 
handed out.

years old, and his mother could not 
spare the money to educate him. 
This condition of poverty caused 
Andrew to be apprenticed to a tailor. 
He worked long hours and hard. 
One day a mau brought a book to 
the shop and recited many selections 
that it contained. Andrew's ambi- 
tion was stirred. With the man's 
help he learned the alphabet. But 
he made no real progress until his 
marriage. His wife read to him as 
he plied the needle. She helped him 
to learn to read and write* She was 
his school. Largely through her 
careful, patient instruction, he was 
enabled to become the mayor of the 
town in which they lived. 

The term "self-made" can be ac- 
curately applied to Abraham Lin- 
coln. His total schooliug consisted 
of ouly five months, two to one 
teacher and three to another. He 
did sums and practiced writing on a 
wood shovel which be shaved with a 
knife to obtain a clean surface. He 
often walked a long distance to bor- 
row books. One volume was ruined 
when rain penetrated through a 
chink in the log cabin, and the 
owner required the boy to work out 
its value. The lad's stepmother 
helped him all sue could. He had 
indomitable will to obtain an educa- 
tion and he did. When he learned 
to write he penned letters for his 
friends; this unselfishness and prac- 
tice improved his pennanship and his 
ability to express thought. 

Washington never sought the 
advantages of college training. He 
was content with the common 
school where he mastered the three 
" R's, " geometry, and surveying. 
During his • sixteenth year he 
quit to become a surveyor of lands. 
When he was fourteen, his half 
brother obtained a place for him in 
the English navy, but his mother 
objected, and he did not go. Thus 
was he saved for his great work as 
military leader and as the nation's 
first President. 

At the University of North 
Carolina a young fellow named 
Polk proved himself correct, punc- 
tual, and industrious. He delivered 
the Latin salutatory because he stood 
first in classics and mathematics. 
Many years later at Kenyon College 
a similar honor came to young Ruth- 
erford B. Hays as valedictorian of 
bis class. 

Polk's predecessor, John Tyler, 
was the ringleader in a school 
rebellion and mutiny, when he and 
his mates overpowered a despotic 
teacher, bound him, and left him in 
the building uutil late at night 
when a passer-by rescued him. 
The students had evidently conclud- 
ed that the man, McMurdo, was as 
bad as his name. He complained 
to Judge Tyler, who dismissed him 
with the warning, "Sic semper 
tyraunis." Long afterward John 
retold the story of the cruel 
principal, and commented, "It 
was a wonder he did not whip all 
the senses out of his pupils. ' ' 

Another Scotchman, Donald 
Robertson, was the master of a 
school which James Madison 
attended. Unlike McMurdo, be 
did not abuse his pupils or heap 
injustice upon them. Madison 
suffered from overwork at Princeton, 
but when he recovered bis health he 
took the studies of the last two 
years in one. After getting his 
degree of B. A., he remained at 
Princeton another year to do special 
work in Hebrew under Doctor Wlth- 
erspoon, head of the institution. 

Since the administration of Wil- 
liam McKinley the Presidents have 
been graduates of large colleges. 
Roosevelt was a Harvard man.

and Princeton respectively.

Harvard, and James A. Garfield at

When President Harding moved into 
the White House on the fourth of 
March, Ohio's collegiate count on 
the roll of Presidents reached a total 
of three. — The Dearborn Indepen-

The schools of the pioneer days 
were imperfect one-room log cabins 
with few wiudows and scauty equip- 
ment. The masters were learned 
in Latin and Greek, and firmly be- 
lieved that the sparing of the rod 
spoiled the child. Yet many of our 
Presidents received their training in 
these meager institutions.

It is a strange and interesting 
fact that when men began, thou- 
sands of years ago, to first study 
things about them in the world they 
started with the objects which are 
largest aud farthest away from 
them ; that is the stars. It seems 
to be our nature to be always in- 
terested in things very far away. 
But we are learning that the most 
important things are often so very 
small that we oannot see tbem, 
and so very near to us that they are 
on or iu our bodies. We sometimes 
call them " bugs," but a better 
name is germs, for a bog is an 
animal and large enough to be seen; 
but these tiny living thiugs usually 
seem to be plants, and are so small 
that they caunot be seen without a 
very powerful miscroscope. 

In olden times, when boys and girls 
became sick, people thought that 
evil spirits did it to punish tbem for 
some wrong which they had done, 
and that the sick boy or girl would 
not get well until (he evil spirit was 
driven out of the body. But doctors 
today kuow that when we get sick it 
is because some very small, invisible 
living creatures have gotten iuto our 
bodies and are poisoning us. They 
are the germs wbich boys and girls 
tiear so much about but never see. 
We want you to see just what a 
germ looks like so that il may help 
you to remember that they are reaf, 
and so we have given you right here 
ou this first page of the Index a 
photograph of the first disease germ 
discovered by man. 

The short thick rods with round- 
ed ends are the germs. Some of 
them are united, at the end, with 
others to form a short chain. 

In the picture each germ is mag- 
nified oue thousand diamaters, so 
that if you should cut tbe picture 
one germ into 1,000,000 equal parts, 
each piece would be just as the sise 
of the germ itself, and, as you can 
easily understand so email that it 
could not be seen. If we wanted to 
make a row one inch long of these 
germs by placing them together end- 
wise, it would take about five thou- 
saud of the medium-sixed ones to 
make the oue-ineh-long row. So you 
can see how very small the germ is. 
The picture was made through a 
very high-power microscope aud 
with a special camera, and is, there- 
fore, a geuuine photograph of a real 
disease geim just as truly as is tbe 
picture of a boy or girl made by the 
photographer. As we said before, 
litis disease germ was the first M 
discovered. A Frenchman by the 
name of Louis Pasteur made the 
discovery in 1876, that this tiny lit- 
tle plant causes in sheep, cows, 
horses, and sometimes iu men, the 
disease called a nth rax. 

With a very powerful micro- 
scope, he found these germs in the 
blood of a cow sick with anthrax. 
He suspected that they might be 
the cause of the oow's siokuesa, but 
he did not know for certain until 
be put a very few of them from tbe 
blood of the sick cow into meat 
broth and kept it warm for several 
hours, when he found that these 
tiny things were alive, for they had 
multiplied to great numbers; and 
when lie then put some ot them 
into the blood of a well 00 w, she 
soon came down with the disease 
anthrax. Aud the first discovery 
of a disease germ was thus made. 
Soon men all over the world 
became interested In the study of 
germs and began to look foi others, 
so that today mora than thirty have 
beeu discovered ami uew ones are 
beiug found eaoh year. 

Invention, strictly speaking, is 
little more than a new combination 
of those images wbich have been 
previously gathered and deposited 
iu the memory. Nothing oan be

On May 8th, in Chicago, 111., 
Rev. John Newton Freeman entered 
into eternal life, aged 77 years. 

Dr. Freeman was a teacher at the 
New York Institution fifty-eight 
years ago. His sister, who was a 
deaf-mute was married to Mr. 
Charles K. W. Strong, a deaf 
teacher at Fan wood for three years. 
Both have long since passed away. 

Among the pupils who came under 
In. Freeman's tutelage was Sidney 
H. Howard, of Chicago, from whom 
we obtained tbe information of Dr. 
Freeman's death. • 

For the past twenty years, Rev. 
Dr. Freeman occupied pulpits in 
many Presbyterian churches in 
Chicago. The funeral services were 
held on May toth, at the Fourth 
Presbyterian Church in Chicago, 
where Rev. Dr. Freeman had served 
as pastor on several occasions. 

Dr. Freeman was born in Allaha- 
bad, India, July 17, 1844. His 
father was a Presbyterian missionary 
who was killed in the Sepoy mutiny. 
Dr. Freeman was graduated from the 
Princeton Theological seminary in 
1867, and besides pulpits in Chicago 
occupied pastorates in Peekskill, N. 
Y., Lockport, N. Y., Milwaukee, 
Denver, and Cleveland 

He is survived by the widow, Mrs. 
Mary Helen Yoe Freeman, and a 
daughter, Mrs. Jesse Benedict Car- 
ter who resides in Europe, and three 
sons, Charles Yoe and John Egar 
Freeman of Chicago, and Halstead 
Gurne Freeman of New York. 

The members of the Senior Class 
presented the following Sunday 
School Concert program on May 
22d: — 

" The Meaning of Life," based upon the 
poem, " Vera," by Henry Van Dyke. 

Part I — Doris Francis. 

Part II — Gordon Kannapell. 

Part III — Florence Lewis. 

Hymn: " The Lord himself give you peace 
always himself by all means." II Thess. 
3 : 16. — Elizabeth Mom. 


PaAYBK— Dr. Hotcbkiss. 

The poem "Vera," by Dr. Henry 
Van Dyke, is to appear in the next 
number of the Annals. It can also 
be found among the poet's collected 
works. It relates how a deaf girl 
had her hearing restored. Then 
the poem goes on to tell how she 
was made to know that love is the 
real meaning of life — that it is life. 
The collection was taken for the 
benefit of the Camp Goodwill work. 
This is a camp at which the city's 
needy can spend part of the hot 
Summer days outdoors. 

The Co-eds made their annual pil 
grimage to Vacation Lodge, at 
Cherrydale, Va. , beginning May 
13th They were split into three 
divisions. The first was composed 
of the Seniors who were able to re- 
main until Sunday, May 15th. The 
second division went over Friday 
and remained till Saturday evening, 
followed by the third division, which 
had Saturday and Sunday. 

The visit was under the Auspices 
of tbe Y. W. C. A. The division into 
three groups was necessary, because 
the Lodge could not accommodate 
them in one body. From reports it 
appears that "Hiking" was the chief 
diversion, Chain Bridge being the

President F. A. Seiberling, 

Friday the 13th ! 

R A. Seiberling, the warm friend 
of the deaf. " Old F. A .," who saw 
that we deaf at Goodyear got foot- 
ball equipment, a fine field to play 
011, a gymnasium and everything 
"Old P. A ," who organized Good- 
year some thirty years ago as a 
three-man plant ; who saw his pet 
grow from a penniless pile of wood 
and rubber to the second largest 
rubber plant in the world " Old F. 
A," who often had to stall and bluff 
to avoid bankruptcy in his early 
years. " Old F. A.," loved by all 
the deaf, and loving them in spite of 
his forty millions 

"Old F. A." is fired. The fol- 
lowing clipping sums it up. 

New Yokk, May 13. — The reorganiza- 
tion of tbe Goodyear Tire and Rabbet 

pHtiy was completed today when 
Seiberling and others were ousted from the 
management of the company, whose 
finances recently had to be readjusted. Ivl- 
ward G. Wilmer of Milwaukee, vice-presi- 
dent of the Steel and Tulie Company of 
America, was elected to succeed Mr. Sei- 

Mr. Wilmer is one of the youngest men to 
head an industrial company of the size ot 
Goodyear. He is 33 years of age, but has 
already made a name for himself in the 
mining, steel and chemical lines. 

I Sladelman and V. W. Litchfield 
are retained as vice-presidents of tie 
pany;H. H. Springford as treasurer, and 
Charles A. Stillman as secretary. 

Several Chicagoians, who have 
been patiently waiting the call to go 
back to work at Goodyear might as 
well look around for something 
steady. Goodyear will probably take 
on the deaf again, but it is hardly 
likely the old homelike features, 
the old forms of semi- philanthropy —

Thomas McCreery died a few 
days ago at his home at Buckban- 
non, W. Va., at an advanced age. 
He was a deaf man and yet a 
man of prominence in his county — 
being for man years owner and 
editor of a Democratic newspaper 
called the Buckhannon Banner 
He was a brother of J. T. McCreery, 
of Hinten, and of the late state 
Senator and Attorney-at-Law, John 
W. McCreery, of Beckley. He 
was a native of Monroe county, 
where his father, tbe late Wm. Mc- 

ery, lived for some years.

An illustrated lecture by Prof. 
Day was given on Saturday evening, 
May 21st. His topic Was " Trees." 
Next week is Forest Preservation 
Week, so it quite appropriate. The 
lantern slides which he used showed 
the work of the Department of 
Forestry to reclaim destroyed forests. 
Tbe Kappa Gamma Fraternity 
made its annual visit to Sbivland on

by 11 to 1 . The game was played 
on the Marylanders' field. This 
season Gallaudet did not win a 
single game. 

With the approach of Field Day, 
May 25th, the candidates from the 
different classes are putting them- 
selves into shape for the track and 
field events. This time it will be 
an interclass contest. Each class, 
except the Junior, is in the race. 
There will be no walk off, but instead 
a warmly fought contest in which 
every point will come in handy. 
Mills, '23, is in Emergency 1 1

The Reading Room Committee has 
authorized the disbursing agent, 
Mr, Hooper, to order its periodicals! 
for the next college year during tbe 
summer. This will prevent the 
'jlesome delay which ordering 
during the fall entailed. 

Tbe class in Domestic Science has 
been required to serve meals now 
and then, to which the instructor, 
Miss Rauch, acting as hostess, 
invited two or three Kendall Green

Two Chicago boys have just re- 
ceived their five-year service pins at 
Goodyear- O'Connor and Ornberg 
Wage reductions were made there 
in November, January and April. 
Goodyear was the first Akron 
f to restore the midnight 
shift, and business is said to be 
booming. Chicagoians may find 
employment there — but they will 
bardly find the old " good time " 
For bankers boss the works, now —

May 14th was "Bunco" night; 
seven tables playing at the Pas down- 
town, and seventeen at All Angels' 
parish house on the .South Side. 
The latter, managed by E. Craig

Chesterfields) being rich and plenti- 

The P. J. Hasenstabs threw open 
the door of their new home to the 
Susan Wesley Circle May 18th, with 
a luncheon to seventeen ladies and 
three non-ladies. The three were 
not ladies because they were 
gentlemen. The Hasenstabs believe 
in labor-saving, having an 
electric dish-washer, washing- 
machine, vaccum sweeper, and a 
tireless cooker. Otto Pauling motor- 
ed in from Nomee that day, bring- 
ing with him Mrs Gibney and the 
C. Overn I Mrs. Julia King, 

of Chicago Heights — who all 
sampled the vittles and attended the 
literary meeting. • 

W. W. Say lea, Racine, was in 
town again May r8th Seems 
three deaf men of Racine combined 
to make up nearly $3,000 for invest- 
ment purposes, and were urged to 
sink it in the Cooperative Society of 
America. Saylea come down to in- 
vestigate the merits of the stock, 
and decided there were so many 
"loopholes in the rules, etc , that the 
investment was far short of being 
classed as gilt-edged. Which seems 
wise, for few of those "co-ops" 
have proven financial gold-mines — 
and the stock market abounds in 
high-class, bang-up bargains. Any 
1 table broker or banker can post 
one on g" tments. 

H. A. Wittemore writes in from 
Menominee, Mich., that a one-leg- 
ged deaf man came to his town- sell- 
ing leadpencUs, which he buys two 
for a nickel and retails at ten c 

ce — often getting as much as 
twenty-five cents per when some 
poor sucker hands him a quarter and 
finally leaves in disgust as the 
peddler, James Sansone, or Sansoi 
fishes slowly in his various j*K-kets 
the change he can not find. 
Wittemore is well known in that 
burgh, being a nt business- 

man, and the pitying citizens sent 
Sansome to see him. 

Wittemore — pretending to be a 
hearing man — wormed all his trade 
secrets out of Sansone by pad and 
pen< e revealed his deaf- 

ness. Sansone gasped, then J<

like Vale's, and will surpass tbe 
Yale howl. The ordinary seating 
cap;. oily is 80,000, and prohahly 
more. It will rest, upon a 14-aore 
site. Adjacent grounds form a 
total site of 16 acres. The bowl 
can be emptied within a few min-

'Recently the City of Los Angeles

Financial difficulties drove him to 
death by his own hand, according 
to the investigation of detectives.

Until recently it was not known 
that Judge McCrodie, who is the

The chief topic of tbe world at

Ilowever, we fully hope Dempsey 
will lick the European champion,

established and many of these 

Unfortunates, Including several 
blind as well as deaf and dumb, 
warn rescued from almshouses.

Organised, lectures, socials and

Provided The evident usefulness 
Of St. Ann's Church lias led the

Since the retirement of Silent 
Martin, the deaf-mute middle- 
weight, who left the ring when he 
felt that he was losing speed and 

force, silent Regan, a lightweight 

deaf-mute, upholds the cause of the 
talkless, non-hearing fighters. 
While Regan is not in the cham- 
pionship class, still he has perform- 
ed so well that he is in constant 
demand by the olub matchmakers. 
Regan is a fighter' from gong to 

gong and always gives a good ac- 
count of himself. 

Martin and Regau weie handled 
by P. W. Meinken, and Regan is 
still unified by Meinken, the only 

deal mute manager in pugilism. —

We are Si receipt of a llttl. book- 
let, giving a list of tbe Gallaudet 
College Alumni Association. It was 
prepared anil printed by Mr. 
Charles I). Seaton, present treasurer 
of the Association. 

It gives a list of members added 
under each treasurer during his 
term, together with receipts and ex- 
penditures for the same, from 1889 
to date, togethei with an alphabetic 
list of all the members and tbe class 
graduated from. There are also 
extracts from the My Laws as adopt 
ed in 1914. 

Mr. Seaton has done an excellent 
job in the workmanship of the book 
and deserves the thanks of the 
members. It will come handy as a 
reference when one wishes to know 
tbe class of a member. 

Mrs. George Clum was hostess to 
a supper given on her lawn last Sa- 
turday evening, to the following 
ladies : Mcadames Zoru, Ohio 
niachoi, Herman Cook, Mayer, 
Wark, Callison, Misses /.ell, Mc- 
Gregor, Greener, Edgar aud Lam 
sou. The eats were varied, ap- 
petizing, and enough for all, and 
the company enjoyed the novelty 
of an outdoor meal as well as the 
chatting of the evening. 

The Home Mou's Building Drive 

has reached its end, though those 
who wish to continue to add more 
will he permitted to do so. 

The total amount collected foots 
up $19,233.69. 

Bellaire, with Mr. Corbett as 
captain, came within $7 of reach- 
ing its goal f300. 

Only two districts failed to show 
anything. While the school, 
through Supt. Jones, contributed 

There is nothing to be ashamed 
over the result. Rather it reflects 
great credit upon the workers and 
contributors alike, considering tbe 
the conditions at the time when tbe 
drive was undertaken. The goal 
was set down for $10,000 and it 
was almost, doubled, and may yet 
reach that point ere long.

The John A. Kelly mansion, 3509 
Sptiug Gatdeu Street, recently pur 
chased by Cardinal Dougherty, will 
be renovated and prepared to house 
the fifty boys and girls now iu the 
Archbishop Ryan Memorial Institute 
for Deaf Children, 1801 and 1803 
Vine Street, It was announced yes- 
terday by the Rev. Thomas F. 
McNally, of tbe Cathedral office, 
Eighteenth and Summer Streets. 

The mansion has a lot 192 by 162 
feet. Title to the property was 
acquired by the cardinal from the 
Giiard Trust Comany. 

Owing to proposed .municipal 
improvements along the Parkway, 
the two buildings now occupied by 
the children will shortly be razed. 
The institute has leased these struc 
lures from the city for eight years. 

Their impending demolition has 
made it necessary for the institute 
to seek new quarters. Tbe Kelly 
Mansion, it is expected, will house 
more than fifty children, when im- 
provements on it have been com 

Large and airy, surrounded by 
spacious grounds, its situation is 
vastly superior to the on? now oc- 
cupied by the institute. Work on 
it will be commenced immediately, 
Father McNally said. — Philadelphia

Another gratifying attendance 
was at the moving picture show 
given for the benefit of All Souls' 
Church's Coal Fund on Sat m day 
eveuini;, May 14th. As a result, 
the fund received a substantial 
boost. Some readers may wondet 
that tbe All Souls' people have been 
betrayiug so much concern about 
their coal bill lately. To these we 
would say that the best time to buy 
coal is now when it is cheaper. In 
normal times All Souls' was able to 
buy its usual supply — about fifty 
tons — for about $300.00 01 near that 
sum, whereas now the same quantity 
costs $750.00 or moie. And since 
coal is only one of a number of items 
of expense the Church has to meet 
each year, It is no easy task to 
obtain the required Bum from a 
congregation that has no wealthy 
members. Another big item of ex- 
pense is All Souls' annual Diocesan 
appoitionmeut, which this year is 
about as large as its coal bill, 
generally speaking. It is no wonder 
then that the people are continually 
planning and working for the Coal 

Mr. Robeit M. Ziogler was the 
speaker before the Belli Israel As- 
sociation for the Deaf on Sunday 
afternoon, May 15th. He spoke on 
several topics of interest and the 
members enjoyed his talk greatly. 

Mr. Frederick A. Moore, of the 
Trenton, N. J., Sohool, was down to 
leetuie before the Philadelphia 
Local Branoh at All Souls' Parish 
House on SsiSrdsV evening, May 
21st, but not being able to be pre- 
sent, we are unable to report the 
lecture iu this letter. 

Recitations formed tbe chief ex- 
ercise at the meeting of the Clou- 
Literary Association on Thursday 
evening. May 19th. 

Quite a few deaf persons from 
this locality may attend the New 
Jersey N. A. D. Branch's festival 
nt the School for the Deaf In 
Trenton, next Monday, May 30th 
(Memorial Day.) We cannot say 
at this time how many will go, but 
wo believe that Philadelphia will 
be represented. Mr. Harry E. 
Stevens asked that those wishing to 
join the " buiioh" on the same 
train should meet him at All Souls' 
Church next Sunday afternoon, 
May '^9th, when the time of the 
train will be agreed upon. Any 
one can j in the party; so show up. 
Mr. and Mis. Holder entertained 
a party from the country on Sun-

Miss Enfield Joiner was approved 
us new piiucipal of the Deaf Sohool 
for the next school year at $3,000 a 
year. She has been in the Govern 
incut service Instructing deafened 
soldiers at various Government sta- 
tions. It was developed that Mrs. 
Carlotta Adele Anderson, of Phila- 
delphia, who has held the place for 
tbe past throe years, claims she has 
a contract to continue. The State

inendation of Chairman Murray, of 
the Deaf School committee, aud the 
school's superintendent, 

The nineteenth annual banquet 
of the Mid-West Chapter of Gallau- 
det Alumni was held at the Black- 
etoue, Omaha's exclusive hotel, at 
7 o'clock Saturday evening. May 
14th. The features that distin- 
guished the gathering from ban- 
quets of other years, were the 
beautiful and exclusive appoint- 
ments of the hotel, and the total 
absence of visitors from a distance, 
which may be accounted for in 
some instances by the price of 
$2.00 a plate. However, their 
places were taken by a number of 
local friends of the members. The 
service and cuisine were all that 
could be desired. Tbe walls and 
celling were finished in Oriental de- 
signs with beautiful black and yel- 
low lanterns placed at intervals 
overhead. President Holway al- 
lowed the speakers to choose their 
own subjects. The list is rather 
unusual, but one and all referred 
to their college days with reverence 
and affection. Mr. Holloway 
might have called forth cheers and 
enthusiasm with bis speech on 
"America" a couple years ago. 
Dr. J. S. Long with "The Spirit of 
1921," contrasted the attitude of 
present day students as to who de-, 
serves a place in Gallaudet Hall of 
Fame, with popular opinion in the 
eighties, not altogether favorable 
to the former, adding that in some 
respects they are much more 
fortunate than their predecessors. 

Mrs. Blankensbip kept us guess- 
ing witli her subject, " Help Me 
Out," until she explained how she 
came to choose it. Several Illus- 
trations of tbe theme were given. 

"Lessons," by Harry G. Long, was 
the next, and was instructive a« 
well as entertaining. He referred 
to both lessons learned in college 
and iu tbe school of life. 

Robert Mullin gave some interest 
ing opinions on "Mirth, and Miss 
Pearson brought all present to theii 
feet, with her graceful and spirited 
rendition of "Auld Lang Syne." 
They "took a cup o'krndness yet," 
and what was In the cup did not 
seem to matter very much. 

Andrew Steinar was in Omaha 
recently, on business, and attended 
the March card party, giveu by the 
Frats. Harry Stark was was also 
down from Pierce, Neb., for a 
several days' visit, the early part of 
May, renewing old acquaintances. 
His friends were glad to see him. 
Wilson Johnson followed last 
week on a several days' business- 
pleasure trip, then came Edward 
Cody, of Lincoln, who is a frequent 
visitor in Omaha — coming down in 
his handsome Paige car. There are 
rumors afloat — but we'll leave the 
rest to some one else to finish. 

The Gallaudet Mid-West chapter

abandoned. Refreshments appro-

After five years of warfare, peace 
has come to us at last. But the 
war has had dire results for German 
deaf-mutes. Today the number of 
unemployed in Germany is greater 
than ever. In Berlin there are at 
the present time 400,000 unemploy- 
ed, among whom, unfortunately, are 
many deaf-mutes. Moreover, in 
times of business depression, the 
latter are the first to be discharged 
by their employers and the last to 
be re-empjoyed. Many have been 
out of work for many weeks, are 
without funds, and therefore must 
starve and die. The children of 
deaf-mute parents suffer most, due 
to the fact that during the war they 
were greatly undernourished and 
still very much underfed. 

I, therefore, most urgently re- 
quest that American deaf-mutes re- j 
spond readily to this very impor- 
tant appeal, and that they kindly 
send their contributions to me, which 
will be distributed indiscriminately 
among the needy and suffering 
mutes of Germany. 

The low rate of exchange of the 
German mark will make it possible 
to distribute a considerably large 
sum to the local poor. 

Trusting that this appeal will 
meet with a hearty response on the 
psrt of American deaf-mutes, I re- 

With friendly greetings, 
Sincerely yours, 
WiX.BKI.Af Gottwkiss, 

Chairman 0/ the Committee 
0/ German Deaf-Mutes.
